Motel Beds Sign to Misra!  

Posted at 12:23 am

Beds_Misra

We’re happier than a panda in a bamboo megastore to welcome Dayton, Ohio’s Motel Beds to the fold. Motel Beds are ever on the rise and their brand of no-frills, Midwest rock & roll is just what Grandma Misra needs.

Check out their absurd video for “Tropics of the Sand” — featuring Kelley Deal (The Breeders, R. Ring). To witness the level of musicianship this band is capable of, watch the PopMatters premiered video for “Smoke Your Homework”. Beds member and producer Derl Robbins has also worked on Guided By Voices’ “Class Clown Spots a UFO” (another great Dayton act). The band is comprised entirely of seasoned Gem City vets. Along with playing music, all five members are male dancers at Applebee’s on Wilmington Pike here in Dayton (Tuesdays, lunch shift, 11 AM – 2 PM).

Misra is set to release Motel Beds ”These Are the Days Gone By” in early 2014. The 12-track album highlights a number of Beds favorites — all remastered by Carl Saff (Guided By Voices, Dinosaur Jr, Thurston Moore, Silver Jews, etc.) with added bass parts via Tod Weidner. “These Are the Days” will also feature a never-before-heard version of “Sunfried Dreams”, along with a Matthew Sweet cover. We’re pressing on high-quality vinyl and CD. The LP covers will be limited, outrageous, and very special. You’ll see. They’re also prepping a split 7″ with R. Ring (Kelley Deal & Mike Montgomery) for future release.

Motel Beds will hit the road consistently next year. They play Fraze Pavilion (pictured below) in Dayton this coming Tuesday, August 27 @ 8 PM.  Tickets are $2. You can’t beat that. Dayton Daily News’ Don Thrasher (GBV, Swearing at Motorists) wrote a piece featuring both Beds and Misra today. If you’re in the Gem City, pick up a copy. More soon… Bye.

Between their time touring with The Breeders on the Last Splash 20th anniversary tour (Kelley on lead guitar/vocals and Mike helping with sound), R. Ring have managed to sneak into Mike’s Candyland Recording Studio to record a couple tracks. Be looking for new music from the band in the near future.

R. RING • Austin’s Transistor Six • Beautiful Lomography Photos • Super 8 Video Footage of the Band  

Posted at 2:34 am

Transistor Six Sessions pay homage to the BBC’s Peel Sessions. They invite artists into their little studio setup at ‘Frank’ in Austin, record a few live songs, take some photos with their Lomo film cameras, do an interview, and often shoot a film on Super 8.

While R. Ring was down in Austin for SXSW 2012, Transistor Six caught up with them. Check out the beautiful work they did! We are grateful for all the time, care, and thought put into R. Ring’s session!

Jerry DeCicca, the phenomenal songwriter behind The Black Swans, is prepping a new record under the name “Jerry David DeCicca.” The album will feature Spooner Oldham, Will Oldham, Kelley Deal and more.

Kelley Deal of R. Ring & The Breeders Heads on Tour with the Latter  

Posted at 11:15 am

breedersxxA reminder that R. Ring’s Kelley Deal will join the reunited Last Splash-era Breeders (Josephine, Jim, Kelley, Kim) to celebrate 4AD’s deluxe reissue of this wonderful album. The reissue arrives in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Last Splash (yes, it really is 20 years old).

Misra’s R. Ring release got some love around the announcement of it all. “Fallout & Fire” was featured in Pitchfork’s announcement of the 20th Anniversary reissue of The Breeders’ Last Splash.

This is particularly exciting for Misra, as three of the Last Splash-era Breeders (Kelley, her identical twin sister Kim Deal, and drummer Jim McPherson) live right here in the label’s hometown of Dayton, OH. The band will do a warm-up show at the Southgate House Revival – a historic regional venue and the original mansion of Tommy gun inventor John T. Thompson.

R. Ring Nominated “New Artist of the Year” at Cincinnati Entertainment Awards  

Posted at 10:23 am

rringjacket

R. Ring have been nominated as “New Artist of the Year” via the Cincinnati Entertainment Awards. While front-woman Kelley Deal resides in Dayton, OH, front-man Mike Montgomery is a resident of nearby Dayton, KY (Greater Cincinnati area). The proximity of Mike’s locale puts them in the running. Do check out this amusing interview with R. Ring via Cincinnati’s City Beat rag.

CB: Kelley, I’m curious about your vocal approach, which is marked by this girlish, slightly affected croon that has become your trademark. How did you come to this way of singing?

KD: Gross. I have an image of Bette Davis in What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? in my mind!
